The program at Spring Growth this year will help you navigate the legalities of hiring and managing farm labor. Learn from other farmers about their farm labor models. Come talk about farm labor law, different labor model strategies and how to adjust to labor shortages. The day will feature two panels, including one of farmers with different labor strategies, and one of service providers who will speak about labor law. A round table portion of the day will focus on tips and tricks for different labor models.
